Apple Response to 3rd Grader's Letter: Get Lost!

Third grader Shea O'Gorman loves her iPod Nano, so when her class started learning about writing a letter, she decided to write Steve Jobs. In her letter, Shea wrote about her ideas to improve the gadget.

Three months later, she heard back ... from the big meanies at Apple's legal department telling her to shove off!

That's right, apple's legal department, telling a nine year old that apple does not accept unsolicited ideas. Apple's legal department told her not send them her suggestions, and if she wants to know why, she could read their legal policy on the Internet.

"We were stunned, we just were stunned, is the best word to say. It just wasn't the appropriate type letter to send to a third grader who had the initiative to write to them," said Shea's mom.

"It kind of seemed like they were saying well we don't want your idea like it's not good or anything," said Shea.

And her mom thinks it's even worse coming from apple. "They are a company who tries to promote itself as an educator of children. That was really, it was unacceptable. They know better than that," said Shea's mom.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your recent suggestion for Neatorama. Unfortunately, our legal department is currently busy, so it may take us 3 months to get back to you with a mean letter :)

This may be, but if I see them using my idea for an iPod nano with a thin candy coating and a chocolate center I will definitely be suing someone.
